Muhafazat Janub Sina' Travel Guide: 1,816 reviews and 3,771 photos

Looking at the map I can see I have only seen a small part of the peninsula. What I have seen is the coast to Gulf of Aqaba, with its resorts and colourful coral reefs and the mountains in the south.

I arrived to Taba in Sinai from Israel. From Taba I took a taxi to St Katherine’s Monastery. After visiting the monastery and climbing Mt Sinai I went to Dahab for one-week scuba diving. I left Sinai with the high-speed ferry from Sharm el Sheik.

    Huge numbers of people on top of that poor little mountain! But I'm sure I would go there too, just for the historical significance. That Monastery Guesthouse sounds like a great place to stay.

    I really enjoyed this page Malena. Lots of interesting information. The monastery looked like a nice place to stay, so you could easily access the way to Mount Sinai. Wonderful sunset photo.

    A very interesting and useful page! I'vnt been to Sinai but I wish to. I can imagine how beautiful sunset and sunrise there (though nobody likes crowds of tourists). Thanks Malena for a virtual travel!

    Great page and travelogues! St Katherine's Monastery looks georgeus, it's a pity it's mostly closed for visitors. Climbing Mount Sinai is a must for me, never mind the crowds :-)

    Fantastic pages....I spent a few months back in 1978 living with the Beduin in Sharm-el-sheik and Ras-el-tur on the other side of the coast. Also spent time in Dahab and Nueweba ...It was part of Israel back then and just hippies and a few tourists then.
